A Georgia father and son have been arrested after the publication of a video depicting a shooting the two men were involved in. Gregory and Travis McMichael were arrested at their home in Brunswick, Georgia on Friday night.
The McMichaels had been involved in the shooting of an area man named Ahmaud Arbery in February, video of which was recently published and inspired demands for the men’s arrest. The McMichaels confronted Arbery in their neighborhood on the basis of several burglaries that had occurred in the area. During an interaction in which the armed men attempted to perform a citizens’ arrest on Arbery, an altercation ensued in which Arbery was shot and killed.
The video of the incident only became public earlier this week, and depicts a confrontation in detail. The McMichaels had been initially cleared of criminal repercussions by a Glynn County prosecutor, who argued the men were engaging in a legal citizens’ arrest of a criminal suspect. Critics of the McMichaels have accused them of reckless and belligerent vigilantism, accosting a jogger who was unarmed in their neighborhood with a shotgun and a .357 revolver.
Graphic video of the incident can be seen here.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation began its own investigation into the incident following the publication of the video on Tuesday, which contrasted with alleged original police claims that Arbery had been shot and killed inside a residence during an attempted burglary.
The men have been arrested on suspicion of murder and alleged assault. A photojournalist presence outside the McMichaels’ home showed the two men being arrested by a sizable detachment of armed law enforcement.
Tenative trial proceedings involving the McMichaels will shed additional detail on the men’s basis to conduct a probable cause citizen’s arrest on Arbery, and the intricacies of the altercation between Travis McMichael and Arbery that led to the latters’ death.
Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People
On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.
He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.
According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.
The report added:
Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.
The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.
Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.
To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.
Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.
The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.
More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
